The Religion, Culture, and Family Project
The Religion, Culture, and Family Project was financed for 12 years by the generosity of the Division of Religion of the Lilly Endowment, Inc.
The Indianapolis-based Lilly Endowment, Inc. was founded in 1937 by three members of the Lilly family through gifts of stock in their pharmaceutical business, Eli Lilly and Company. The Endowment – a private philanthropic foundation – is a separate entity from the company, with a distinct governing board, staff and location, and is devoted to the causes of religion, education and community development.
Now the country's largest single funder in the field of American religion, the Endowment supports a wide variety of efforts that strive to ensure a quality ministry for the future and build vital and healthy congregations. It also funds projects designed to promote informed dialogue about religion in American life, generate new knowledge, communicate fresh insights, and renew and sustain vital institutions of American Christianity.
